Mrs. Etta Anderson,
Dear Madam: The enclosed circular letter explains the work we are doing. It is a
charming work, and will be appreciated by all lovers of the cause. We are complimented
on every hand by such men as Judge Calhoun, Col. Kell, Judge Rodgers, Dr. J. Wm.
Jones, and others upon the beauty of the work, and the Committee of the Ex-Confederate
Society here is cooperating with us. We are gathering quite a collection of photos of the
generals we intend to show up by photo engraving. Genl. Patton Anderson has been
selected to use his photo. Gen. now Senator Walthall who has sent us his photo, sends
me your address. We can get photos of most of the generals we want, but we want the
party or his friends to be pleased, hence we apply directly to them. The work is
approaching completion. We can wait but a little longer before we close up. Can you
furnish us a photo of Gen. Anderson? If so please mail it, protected by card-board,
immediately. We will return it if you wish.
